Tess Daly dons a white mini dress at the BAFTA 2022 Gala Dinner with her dapper husband Vernon Kay

Tess Daly made a very stylish arrival with her husband Vernon Kay at the British Academy Film Awards 2022 Gala Dinner at The Londoner Hotel on Friday night.

The TV presenter, 52, put on a leggy display in a white mini dress featuring a plunging neckline and sleeves as she posed up a storm alongside her dapper partner, 47, who sported a navy suit and a matching polo sweater.

Gazing into each other’s eyes, the power couple certainly looked loved-up as they joined the other big names at the star-studded event.

The BAFTAs will be taking place on Sunday 13 March at the Royal Albert Hall and will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Rebel Wilson, who will be hosting the Academy’s 75th ceremony, recently admitted to her nerves and that she worries about being cancelled for her jokes.

She confessed to the Radio Times: ‘Your head is on the chopping block as the host, which is a bit scary. I get very nervous.

‘It’s a very hard time for comedians, because what can you say without being cancelled?’

The nominations were announced last month with Dune, The Power Of The Dog and Belfast leading with 11, eight and six respectively. 

Their outing comes after Tess revealed last month what it’s like parenting with Vernon and admitted they make their daughters ‘cringe’ with their loved-up displays.

The Strictly presenter and the All Star Family Fortunes host are mum and dad to Phoebe, 17, and Amber, 12, with Tess admitting she’s ‘the boss’ of the household.

Speaking to The Mirror about the parenting dynamic between herself and Vernon, Tess explained: ‘I’m Mum Cabs, that’s my main role in life. Vernon is brilliant with the girls.

‘He’s very into getting them outdoors, he’ll take them on bike rides or go up into the woods and make a rope swing. He’s a really fun dad. It works well between us.

Asked about Vernon recently branding her the ‘boss of the house,’ Tess laughed and teased: ‘Well, would the boss ever admit that? Well, I guess I run the children’s schedules and the meals. So am I the boss? Probably!’

The presenter also admitted they make their kids ‘cringe,’ confessing: ‘If he kisses me in the kitchen, the 12 year old goes ‘Urgh gross!’ She’s at that point but she’s smiling behind the horror.’

Earlier this year, Vernon insisted that the pandemic and lockdowns served to benefit their family life as it made him appreciate his loved ones more than ever. 

Speaking to Rylan Clarke’s Ry-Union podcast, he said: ‘In 10 years time, I hope that everything is the same. I hope the kids are healthy. I hope that Tess and I are as strong as ever. I hope my parents are the same. 

‘I just thought, I just want it to be the same. You know, because I think going through this pandemic, this podcast by the way is a lot deeper than I thought it would be. 

‘Because of the pandemic I think we’ve realised how special our loved ones are to us. And that’s what I’d like to be the same in 10 years time.’
